NYSG at 50: New York Sea Grant Through The Years — Web Version
NYSG @ 50 - News

Over the past 50 years, New York Sea Grant (NYSG) has brought nearly $180 Million to New York State (NYS) to support coastal environmental sustainability, coastal economic vitality, and coastal citizens’ awareness and understanding through research, extension, outreach and education.

Extension professionals work with diverse stakeholder groups who provide input, along with that of the research community, to advance state-of-the-art research and coastal management for the benefit of NY’s varied coastal environments and communities.

NYSG has supported nearly 870 graduate and undergraduate students and over 1,100 researchers across over a dozen NYS colleges and universities.

NYSG also reaches hundreds of K-12 teachers and thousands of students, exposing them to STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) career opportunities and developing the next generation of coastal environmental stewards, researchers, and decision-makers.

More Info: New York Sea Grant

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York (SUNY), is one of 34 university-based programs under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program.

Since 1971, NYSG has represented a statewide network of integrated research, education and extension services promoting coastal community economic vitality, environmental sustainability and citizen awareness and understanding about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources.

Through NYSG’s efforts, the combined talents of university scientists and extension specialists help develop and transfer science-based information to many coastal user groups—businesses and industries, federal, state and local government decision-makers and agency managers, educators, the media and the interested public.

The program maintains Great Lakes offices at Cornell University, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Oswego and the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University in Long Island, Brooklyn College and Cornell Cooperative Extension in NYC and Kingston in the Hudson Valley.
